Even in victory, Richard Sherman is one ornery individual.

Following the Seattle Seahawks 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC title game, a game in which Sherman made the pivotal, game-sealing tip, Sherman unloaded on Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews, declaring himself the premier cornerback in the league and trashing 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree.

A transcript of the interview via BuzzFeed:

-- [Sherman:] “Well, I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get! Don’t you EVER talk about me.”

-- [Andrews:] Who was talking about you?

-- [Sherman:]“Crabtree. Don’t you open your mouth about the best. Or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick. L-O-B.”

Sherman added fuel to the fire at the postgame podium, as well.

Crabtree fired back at Sherman shortly after the game via social media.
